If you’re familiar with The Medium Stream, you may have noticed the major change at http://www.mediumstream.com. You may have also noticed that I haven’t posted here in MONTHS. My last entry mentioned the fact that the direction of this blog is and will be changing.

The Medium Stream has now become, simply, “tMS”. tMS is a community based website that offers a social network engine and a place for creators of all shapes and sizes to share useful information with eachother – Not to mention the information tMS will be displaying for its members to have and use. After all of this time, the site is finally up now. It has quite a few bugs, and won’t be officially launched for awhile but please feel free to be one of the first to join the community! Right now, as a member, you have the ability to write blogs, integrate your profile with major websites like Twitter, and Flickr, create private or public groups of any topic of your choice (with a private/public forum for each group) and more! Lots of things are in the works and much is in progress. I am now focusing more on my own blog there, rather than here, so join the site for many more updates!


Jean-Luc Godard

All right, so if you haven’t notice I haven’t written a THING for weeks. A lot of people are asking why and are floored at the sudden hault of posts. Here is the simple truth… There hasn’t been anything interesting enough to post. Have you noticed that most of the things in the works right now are mostly remakes (has been for years, really) but now they’ve stooped down to the level where now they’re trying to re-vamp Biopics aswell… Either that or some recycled version of The Matrix (-coughWantedcough-), or some other super poppy movie. I mean come on, they’re making a biopic about EVERYTHING nowdays. EVERY – THING. Bob Marley, George W. Bush, Michael Jordan (what are they on now, the 5th biopic?), Hugh Hefner, the list goes on literally FOREVER. We seriously need a Film Petition Society. Anyway, the concept of this blog will be changing over time. Looks like Jean-Luc Godard was spot on about the film industry. Until then… CRITERION COLLECTION, HERE I COME!


All right ladies and gentleman. I’ve got some very important news for you today – The special effects and make-up legend Stan Winston DIED at 62 years old on SUNDAY. I don’t know if you’re like me… but when I read about this, I had absolutely NO idea who in the world this guy was. UNTIL I read this at Dark Horizons:

the man

  • “The 62-year-old Winston was best known for his work in the Terminator, Jurassic Park, Aliens, and Predator franchises. Other notable films included Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns, Interview with the Vampire, Pearl Harbor, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, Big Fish, Constantine, End of Days, Lake Placid, Congo, Leviathan, The Ghost and the Darkness and The Thing.”

That is A LOT of extremely famous work – This guy is truly a legend and will live on in his films for, presumably, the rest of time as we know it. Can you picture FORGETTING about Terminator? How about EDWARD SCISSORHANDS? I DON’T THINK SO! Long live the king!


w00t

Hey everyone, I apologize for not posting for over a week – My cousin got married and I was a groomsman! Such an exhausting day – Hardly any sleep and full of standing on a brightly lit stage – or what I’d like to call “The Furnace” – as well as picture taking, and receptions and yadda yadda yadda. Not only that, I’ve been working on several new projects and [insert 10 other bad excuses]. What really sucks though is that my *newly* married cousin and his *new* wife missed their flight to their long awaited honeymoon – Sad story, indeed. Anyway, there’s LOADS of news that I’ll be posting periodically within this week so keep TUNED! Time to get back to work!


Jake GyllenhaalLooks like Jake Gyllenhaal is going to have another film to be working on. He is currently scheduled to start shooting the new “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” film, and is now signed(?) to star in Dreamwork’s untitled film about “lunar colonization”. For some reason this film reminds me of something he’d do in his earlier days. Click here for the article presented by The Hollywood Reporter. Don’t you just love it when entertainment websites give you half of the details and leave you begging for more information?


… “Marvin Gaye” directed by F. Gary Gray. Details HERE.


Adam SandlerWell surprise, surprise, Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison is taking a turn into a new genre. I’ll give you one guess… and I’ll give you a hint — “Scary Madison” is the new name of new production company designed for the new genre. That’s right, a “thriller” film. The film will be called “Shortcut”. And for those curious foes, Adam Sandler will be an exec producer and will not be starring in the film. It’s a shame… Adam Sandler isn’t too bad of an actor and we rarely ever get to see him in something that isn’t a “comedy” (in all honesty, are they really that funny?). Check out the original source at The Hollywood Reporter for more details.
